On February 13 at 19 and 21 p.m. in Lviv Palace of Arts a day before Saint Valentine’s Day a screening about the mysterious and illogical feeling will take place. Watch teaser.
Absolute love – fiction and reality, words or actions depending on whether you are in love or not.
Each of the personages of the shorts has his absolute love: for a couple from Canadian film “Big Branch” it is a strong desire for each other, a test for patience, for “Amateurs” by Javier Laarte – a dubious experiment with an unknown ending, and for “Broken” by Spanish director Roberto Pérez Toledo – is the ability to say “no”. “Vicky and Sam” became hostages of three scriptwriters, and personages of “Division of Gravity” and “Brink” are clinging to the smallest details that remind them of their past love.
